This link will let you skip alot of the steps and take you directly to sword customizations. From there you get the key in seconds:
https://scars.forhonorgame.com/en-GB/custom.html

If you get a problem later that says Invalid parameters then this worked for me:

for those that are having the invalid parameters issue, try this as it worked for me:

you get the website link which is - <9916>http://forhonor.ubisoft.com/game/en-(YOUR COUNTRY)/beta-redeem/

example for me, it showed up as en-AU . I just changed it to en-GB and registered for the beta successfully.
Edit: en-US does not work.

Yea.. this "scars" website is not available to US users. Whatever that is. I did get a key through a user from one of said territories. Adding that through the redemption website still appeared to work.

Typing en-gb worked for me even though I'm in Sweden. It said en-NORDIC first I think.

For me its the berserker or whatever th class is called, the dual wielder. And Valkyrie is my second.

I still hope they introduce other factions later on, spartans, mongols...etc.

Obviously i'm gonna try all the characters, but to me the Japanese faction is the most boring one. Katana so over hyped, give me a zweihänder any day or some classic old sword & board ;)

I really wish the vikings were better designed, and perhaps a bit more inspired by...you know, real vikings.

Game looks rad though, gonna be fun to try it out :)

with 6 maps included in the beta, I wonder what the final size is going to be!?

Wll i mean a more reasonable outfit for the vikings would be chain mails, leather armor and gambesons rather than like...belts :P

Should be all conan like :P

But yeah, actual armor/clothing would be more fitting than shirtless.

Meh. I used a header forwarder and got it to load, but it sticks at 100%. Fuck it.

For those of you worrying (no one) I actually just got invited via email without needing the code, so... yay.

About the game


What's up?
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX I liked the first one. The cover system works okay in elimination deathmatch. I'm not a fan of sticky cover as a rule though. Especially now that many games have done contextual auto cover that works. (31 minutes ago)
  • Tinks
    Tinks I guess so? It's been a long time since I played one to be fair (39 minutes ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX Yea.. that's what Gears of War is. (1 Hour ago)
  • Tinks
    Tinks also GOW looked interesting from some of the competitive matches I saw. But lots of weird sticky cover play (1 Hour ago)
  • Tinks
    Tinks just started playing the Forest today and sunk too much time with my buddy. WOOF that game is fun (2 Hours ago)
  • scoobs0688
    scoobs0688 New enemy types, namely the Snatchers, Pouncers, and Carriers were aggressively unfun to fight. Still a good game, not a great game by any means. 7/10 (3 Hours ago)
  • scoobs0688
    scoobs0688 The new characters mostly uninteresting and their chatter during the game annoying at times. Marcus/Cole/Baird was very fun. Giant robots super fun. Wind mechanic way overused. (3 Hours ago)
